fan fiction writing at mighty writers

Here is your workshop leader, five minutes before class starts, having a serious bout of imposter syndrome. I have been under the impression that I had just started liking MY kids more the closer they got to puberty. Turns out, I think I love this age group. We had a diverse group of 10-13-year olds…

finally, an outlet for all my edward woodward fan fiction

NO! i said i would NOT use it for that… But I will be leading this original workshop at Mighty Writers South starting next month. It only makes sense since how were C and B supposed to be left hanging like that when “The Get-Down” was cancelled… plus, they are ready to write some “Umbrella…
